Q3 2018

Updates on CECL
On July 25, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) voted to amend its CECL transition guidance to provide nonpublic business entities (non-PBEs) a later implementation date for CECL.

The new effective date for non-PBEs is expected to be for fiscal years that begin after Dec. 15, 2021. Accordingly, any company that qualifies as a non-PBE would adopt CECL and adjust its opening retained earnings balance as of Jan. 1, 2022.

CECL remains effective for SEC registrants in the fiscal years that begin after Dec. 15, 2019, and PBEs in the fiscal years that begin after Dec. 15, 2020.
